Art to Zoo: Exploring Animal Natures
September 28, 2014 – January 4, 2015

Photographers in Art to Zoo reveal the complex, thoughtful, and often elegant ways in which animals touch, see, and hear the world. Using non-invasive imaging techniques, scientists and animal behaviorists are finding irrefutable evidence that other species know vastly more than heretofore thought. The ancient Greeks had a class of animals that were semi-divine; the Egyptians worshipped animal deities; the pre-Columbians, a feathered serpent. Animals throughout human history have been revered and reviled, treasured and feared, yet little has been established as scientific fact until relatively recently. Throughout this macro to micro look at the animal world, the belief in overall human superiority is proved suspect, if not arrogant.

KATRIN KORFMANN ENSEMBLES ASSEMBLED
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 18, 2014

RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 5-8PM

Korfmann’s work is characterised by the bird’s-eye view perspective from which people are photographed moving in the scene below, capturing them in static images that present an abstract of human interaction: strongly aesthetic, its dynamic bound by the grid of everyday life.

RICHARD TUSCHMAN HOPPER MEDITATIONS
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 18, 2014

RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13,5-8PM

Richard Tuschman found inspiration in the realist, mid-century paintings of Edward Hopper. Combining his interests in art history, photography, painting and assemblage, Tuschman recreated and re-imagined many of Hopper’s paintings in this body of work. Tuschman’s photographs depict real-life models inhabiting dollhouse-sized dioramas built by the artist. The brooding color palette and textural quality typically found in paintings help to blur the line between painting and photography – at first glance, one is not sure which medium is being employed. The subjects in Tuschman’s narratives are captured in timeless moments of deep thought and reflection.

Julie Blackmon — Homegrown
through November 15th, 2014

Opening Friday, September 26th from 5-7

Drawing on the Dutch notion of “a Jan Steen Household,” meaning a boisterous and untidy home filled with rambunctious children, Blackmon crafts images of domestic disarray in a contemporary suburban context. These engaging tableaus are photographed in and around Blackmon’s Missouri home, often depicting her own children and extended family. Avoiding the overtly sentimental, Blackmon’s precisely orchestrated compositions blend wit and whimsy in the face of everyday realities. Blackmon’s large-scale color photographs draw inspiration from everyday life as well as fiction; recent images draw from the works of Edward Gorey, Tim Burton, Lewis Carroll and Federico Fellini — and continue to be influenced by 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings
